For many, neck, back and leg pain such as sciatica causes discomfort and restrictions every day of their life. As well as chiropractic treatments, there are painkillers that can temporarily ease pain, but side affects or the dislike of taking medicine everyday can cause people to look for alternative treatment – such as IDD therapy.
What is IDD Therapy?
This non-surgical therapy is now offered as another option for those who have experienced on-going pain caused by a previous injury, accident or medical condition.
Intervertebral Differential Dynamics (IDD) therapy is becoming a popular treatment for those who are not seeing results from other forms of therapies and are requiring an alternative option. Aimed to help with the following;
- Lower back pain
- Neck pain
- Trapped nerves
- Prolapsed discs
- Bulging discs
This almost painless therapy targets spinal segments as well as back muscles and ligaments to help improve mobility of the joints and reduce on-going ailments.
According to the IDD Therapy Disc Clinic, there are four goals of this therapy
- Improvement in intervertebral disc health
- Rehabilitation of any supporting ligaments and muscles
- Spinal structure realignment
- Release of pressure on nerves
What’s Involved in the Treatment?
IDD is a non-invasive spinal decompression treatment of the intervertebral disc, which aims to improve the mobility and reduce the amount of pain in a problem area.
Here is what’s involved in the treatment;
A chiropractor, physiotherapist or osteopath, will use a computer controlled medical device and ensure targeted segments of the spine are drawn apart, to release pressure on certain discs and nerves. During this process, tight muscles and stiff ligaments are also stretched to ease pain and help a patient become more mobile.
During this therapy, the stretching encourages the repair of the muscles and spine naturally to relieve pain and irritation.
Unlike other treatments or therapies, this is relatively new but is being proven to have massive effects on the pain relief of patients across the UK. Persistent back and neck pain causes problems with every day activities due to the mobility restrictions including walking and driving.
Choosing a Clinic or Therapist
Internationally, there are now over 1,000 clinics offering this service with an emerging number throughout the UK. As with any treatment for your health, ensuring you choose the right therapist is vital.
